True lightness in the dark...
Feb 2014
Yogi Anup Gupta was the most memorable teacher I had the pleasure to practice with on my recent 4 month round-the-world yoga adventure, not least, the most spiritually-uplifting and enlightening encounter I had in Rishikesh. In a place where there seem to be more yoga teachers than students, it's hard to navigate through the multitude of offerings to find a truly authentic experience, so once I found Anup on day three, I was hooked and took both the morning Hatha and evening Ashtanga sessions with him (justified by their being just 300 rupees each!) His authentic bhakti-infused hatha classes are a revelation, particularly if, like me, you're used to the westernised power vinyasa brand, and his strong anatomical understanding of the Ashtanga primary series saw several of my bad habits disappear almost overnight. I left every class having actually 'learnt' something, rather than having simply followed a sequence barked at me by an unsmiling 'teacher' and these learnings continue to influence my self-practice on a daily basis. Anup's hand-on adjustments are also incomparable, possibly due to his highly in-demand skills as a traditional and thai yoga masseur (book in if you can!), and the sense of 'oneness' his teaching conveys is a joy to experience. His is a prime example of someone who truly lives their yoga. I'm already planning my next trip back to Rishikesh for the sole purpose of studying further with this inspiring self-taught Guru - I cannot sing his praises enough.

YOGA ln the rooftop shala
Feb 2016 • Business
The shala is owned and hosts Anup Gupta Yoga School. Anup is a skilled teacher with disciplined background. He offers a variety of styles though primarily focused on Hatha Iyengar and Ashtanga. He travels a lot gains experience and exposure to variety of cultures and is an humble teacher. Ready for fun as well as ready for discipline.
